Alex Brown, events officer at Knutsford Town Council, said: “This was our second art trail and obviously 2021 was impacted by the pandemic so this year’s event was small whilst we explore how this might evolve in future years.

“We’re thrilled to have seen so many beautiful displays across the town and to offer this platform for local art and artists to be celebrated.”

The event is likely to be repeated in 2023 with organisers looking to expand the event to two days.
